're doing poorly, governor corzine, when the president of the united states has to give some of his best poem to your campaign and appear three times in the midst of some very critical decisions. steve: but mr. christie touched on something important. the key to new jersey hangs in how many votes chris daggett, the third party candidate can siphon off. latest shows he's polling at about 12% which could doom chris christie's chances. gretchen: i thought maybe daggett would drop out of the race and throw his support in one or either of the directions which would probably mean a win for chris christie. let's take a look at the latest polls. this quinnipiac university poll has chris christie two percentage points ahead of jon corzine. believe four polls were released within the last couple of hours. all are within the manchin of error -- margin of error. some have corzine up by one or two points. some have christie up by one or two points. there are more registered democrats in the state of new jersey than republicans. so the one word that's important today is turnout. who will turn out? bri
